[ARCHIVED] SunCrest Snow Removal 2-22-23

Weather Alert

Update 2/22/23, 5:24 PM - Due to the continual snowfall over the past 24 hours and the tremendous amount of snow accumulating from this storm, pushing snow with plows has become less effective in your area. Crews are now primarily using a loader to remove snow, which takes more time. Our public works department has reached out to contacts outside of the City to access additional loaders and operators, which are scheduled for this evening.

Because of these circumstances we do not have an estimate yet as to when crews will get to snow removal on secondary streets. However, work will continue throughout the night and we will provide a situational update tomorrow morning.

Please continue to help each other as neighbors as much as you can.

Conditions in the neighborhoods of SunCrest have forced our snow plowing crews to change how they normally operate. The drifting is so severe, the trucks are getting stuck. In all of the narrower neighborhoods they are going to have to use a blower to try and clear down the middle of the road. They are also chaining up a loader to help. There have been so many trucks getting stuck, there has been a skeleton crew operating since before 6 AM. We ask for your patience as we work to resolve these challenges. 

Also, please remember that lower priority roads, including cul-de-sacs, will not be plowed until it stops snowing and drivers can get caught up.
